Some would say that God will not put on a person more than they can bear, but Paige begs to differ because she is truly on the edge. One more unexpected and unpleasant occurrence and she'll be free falling.

The story line is probably great, but the narrator spoiled it. There was no energy or performance. It was as if she was reading to a classroom of children. Instead of bringing the characters to life, she killed them, they all sounded the same. Multiple personalities with the same voice. Please re-do with a different narrator.

This was an exceptional story of romance, trust, pain and family. Many will say that love takes time. Marie Force has once again proved that this is a myth. I loved Shane and Katie's story, but what struck a chord was what Madsy and Mac went through. Their love and the support of family and friends proved stronger
